We came to the town at the evening, when the palace was already closed, but anyway it looks beautiful at the evening. I will definitely recommend to visit this place.

We came during the off season, and on a cool day, we mostly wandered the grounds. The gardens are well tended and there are signs in multiple languages explaining the history. There is also a small restaurant with extraordinary pastries...a must visit!
